However, the shirtsleeves-and-tie look has become more common outside of the executive culture. The resulting default for most men is rapidly becoming a caricature of itself. The uniform has its advantages: The light-shirt-and-tie approach is inoffensive, unquestionably, but also visually interchangeable with co-workers, peers, and competitors. Being one of half a dozen or half a hundred, or half a thousand guys in the department who all look about the same does nothing to help you out.
The first step toward standing out in a shirtsleeves office is to put something over them. A suit is right out, but a casual jacket or sport coat will usually be acceptable — and unusual.
Most men will happily avoid the expense and effort of maintaining jackets if they can avoid them though neither is particularly challenging , making it stand out from the start. Plain colors are easy to match but boring to look at. Checks and striping are both common and flattering patterns, though both should be kept small in scale.
Large, bold stripes are more suited to stylish social wear, and anything checked more aggressively than a restrained grid pattern is veering too close to plaid for corporate tastes. Textured fabric can serve as an alternative form of patterning, such as a herringbone weave to give a shirt a two-tone sheen. Just like shirts, a monochrome tie is safe but boring.

We’ve witnessed the horror: men in ill-fitting shirts, baggy trousers and indistinguishable blazers, failing at office style and subconsciously slipping down the corporate ladder.
